Can I upload material used in songs I'm selling else where?

For example, say I have song i’m working on and I feel that a part (chorus, verse, bridge, intro or break) would be good for commercial use, can I sell that part here and sell my complete song that includes that part on a website like cd baby?
I’m an exclusive author I would think there could be an issue but I would like to make sure.

No, as you would be selling the same musical idea/motif/production on several markets.

Sure you can, you can sell anything you want on iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music etc. Even the exact complete tracks. You just can’t license it for sync use anywhere else.

True, I forgot about the “personal use” aspect. Yes, you can still sell the song for personal listening only.

ok good, thank you
